About the Telnet Server

Any workstation with a Telnet facility should be able to communicate with the switch over a TCP/IP network using VT100 terminal emulation.

Up to eight active Telnet sessions can access the switch concurrently. If you enable the idle timer using the enable cli idle-timeout command, the Telnet connection times out after 20 minutes of inactivity by default. If a connection to a Telnet session is lost inadvertently, the switch terminates the session within two hours.

The switch accepts IPv6 connections.
